Booming pub chain Wetherspoon would like to open a new pub in Tring – if anyone’s got a site for it.

The high-profile pub firm told the Gazette there was ‘no doubt whatsoever’ it would like to open one of its traditional pubs in the town.

Spokesman Eddie Gershon said: “We are definitely interested in Tring. It is a decent town and a lot of people want to open a pub there, but not many sites are coming up. If one came up, we would certainly be keen on it.”

Wetherspoon now runs about 900 pubs – and, despite historically focusing on bigger cities, is opening more and more pubs in smaller towns as it attempts to reach new customers.

It already runs The Crown in Berkhamsted and The Full House in Hemel Hempstead.

Mr Gershon was speaking ahead of the chain’s UK-wide sale of beer and meals from Wednesday, January 2, to Thursday, January 31. Some prices will be cut by up to 50p in that time.
